James Gunn and his rebooted DCU is the talk of the Hollywood town. And he found his Supergirl in House of the Dragon fame Milly Alcock. She played young Rhaenyra Targaryen in the HBO prequel show with a fierce tenacity that felt like a breath of fresh air.

Now, it seems like Alcock is making a mark on the industry and taking on more diverse roles to showcase her range. However, being an Australian actress, it wasn’t so easy for her to land the iconic DC role.

Ryan Condal has been one of the primary showrunners of House of the Dragon. He handpicked the actors and made major decisions that made the show such a hit. So, naturally he deserves some credit for shooting Milly Alcock to global fame. When he learned that Alcock might be playing Supergirl in the near future, Condal ensured the actress faced no difficulty. He recalled while speaking to Entertainment Weekly,

“We texted back and forth, but I had heard a rumor that she was up for it in the final running. There was something else going on that I think her reps needed a letter from me or something like that for immigration. It was something very boring. So I was just texting with her to say, ‘It’s all taken care of. Let me know if you need anything else. By the way, are you Supergirl?’ And then I got back a series of emojis that totally did not answer the question but did intrigue me.”

Condal was beyond overjoyed to learn Alcock is in the running for the part since he believes the sky’s the limit for the talented young actress. She’s only just getting started and who knows what heights she’ll scale in her career. Other actresses in the running to play Supergirl were Meg Donelly, Cailee Spaeny, and Emilia Jones. Condal immediately congratulated Alcock when her casting news made the headlines.

“She’s just such a wonderful person and young actor. Sky’s the limit in front of her now. Literally the sky’s the limit because you will be flying through it. But it’s just crazy to me, and I’m so proud of her and so happy for her, and I think it’s great. I’m just hoping that she ends up filming at Leavesden [the U.K. studio where they shoot House of the Dragon] so that we can hang out on each other’s sets.”
